(NBA) Raptor's Patterson seals victory over Nets with steal
(01-28 14:50)

Patrick Patterson stole Deron Williams' inbounds pass and made the go-ahead jumper with 6 seconds left, and Toronto stopped a five-game winning streak by Brooklyn for the second time this month, beating the Nets 104-103.
Brooklyn had a three-point lead with 17 seconds left behind Paul Pierce in his best game with the Nets, but John Salmons scored on a drive with 12 seconds remaining before Brooklyn took its last timeout to move the ball into the frontcourt, AP reports.
Patterson stole the pass and fed Kyle Lowry, who got it back to Patterson for his jumper. Pierce was well off on a final attempt.
Lowry finished with 31 points and seven assists for the Raptors, who moved 2-1/2 games ahead of the Nets for the Atlantic Division lead.
Pierce scored 33 points, making seven 3-pointers in a strong bounce-back performance after going just 2 for 10 in his emotional return to Boston on Sunday. He had the Nets in position to win after scoring their last nine points before Toronto stole it.
